    I think it was Stalin who once said, “One baby is adorable; one million is a tad bit creepy.”

    Yes, I’m sure Stalin spurted such aphorisms as “tad” and “creepy” in all his jingoistic comments!

    A close look will reveal the babies are not all Japanese. Would imagine this photographer was in Yokohama.
